You got on to an elevator that goes up 9 floors. The walls are mirrored so you can watch your six fairly easily. Goblins already on the elevator with you As you keep your right side (gun side)towards the control panel and you watch all the other passengers, you noticed that the goblin, who is at your 11 and in the far corner, reaches under his jacket for what appears to be a cross draw position. A possible goblin at your 12 next to the other control panel misses signal of goblin #1...everyone else has gotten off the elevator at the seventh floor.
What do you do?
What are some of your options?

preventative should have been used...avoid using the elevator when filled with goblins...but, as we're already in the situation...try to get into a corner, even if rudely, and ask him what's under his jacket...direct challenge, no beatin' around the bush...look him right in the eyes when you speak, and speak in a firm calm voice...if TSHTF, grab a shield and make your piece with God...

I agree with the firm challenge. And depending on the size of the elevator compartment, you might be better off punt kicking (technical term) the little scumbag before going for your carry gun.

They have to be nuts also, an elevator is a pretty horrible place for a robbery.

Also stuck in the close confines of an elevator, if they have a knife instead of a gun, you can be just as screwed if not more so.
